• CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO COVID LOCKDOWN RULES... However we have plans for reopening in place!
  • GARDEN BAR OPEN from April 14th Wed-Sat We're so exited to have a provisional date to get up and running in some capacity! So we intend to open our lovely garden from Wednesday 14th April, operating our Garden Bar Wednesday to Saturday from 12-10pm, with a daily limited Garden Menu served all day 12-8.30pm to make the most of the (hoped for) Spring sunshine and new social freedom! We have limited cover in the garden with a few parasols and an awning, and a couple of heaters, so we are slightly running the gauntlet on the weather front and choosing not to install a temporary marquee or covering because one of the loveliest things about our garden is that it's sunny, bright and open, and normally the weather for April/May is glorious so it seems daft to cover it over! Fingers crossed everyone...
  • LIMITED GARDEN BOOKINGS / WALK-IN'S WELCOME  We are only taking bookings for a few tables which have any shelter, ie. parasol or awning, so the majority of tables are available for walk-ins... just come on in. Wrap up warm and come in early if you're coming in the evening! We have plenty of space in the garden, more than inside in fact, and we'll be serving food right through the afternoon, so we feel in the circumstances this is the right way to go about it! Don't forget social distancing, track and trace, and the rule of six will still be in place, so please respect this.
  • RENDEZVOUS FULLY OPEN from May 17th As soon as the government gives the go ahead, we'll be opening fully inside the wine bar and restaurant, albeit with social distancing in place of course, but returning to our normal operation Monday to Saturday from 12noon til late, serving lunch and dinner and taking bookings up to six people. Please come and see us soon! And call us on 01392 270222 to book a table from mid May onwards...
  • We are waiting for full details of the restrictions and social distancing measures that will be in place once we can open, but for now please keep yourselves and everyone around you safe by abiding by the latest rules! For now we will leave the previous indoor covid measures and rules up on the website and will update them as new measures are announced.
  • KEEPING EVERYONE SAFE Please bear in mind there will be a few changes in the way we run the show, simply to keep our team and our customers safe by minimising the risk of transmission of Covid-19. Let me reassure you that we have numerous measures in place to facilitate social distancing, and we'd very much appreciate you respecting our new policies. For example, the front door to the wine bar will be for ENTRY only, and customers will be asked to EXIT via the garden entrance, although the back door remains a two-way thoroughfare, so please just check the mirrors for anyone coming the opposite way and respectfully stand aside as necessary. Please ensure you wear a mask ad use the sanitising station by each door on arrival, and as often as you feel necessary during your visit. We can only offer table service inside currently, rather than bar service. Lunch and dinner bookings are strongly advised while we have reduced capacity. We only take bookings for diners.
  • Customers are required to wear a mask inside when not seated at their table, ie. on arrival, when leaving, and for going to the loo or standing near the bar etc. Thank you in advance for adhering to this request. Our staff will also be wearing masks of course!
  • Customers must provide a name and contact number when visiting Rendezvous, either using the QR code check-in, the NHS tracing app, or by old-school pen and paper at the bar!
  • Please help us by maintaining a sensible social distance from our staff and other customers, even after a drink or two(!), and by paying contactless or by card where possible.
  • Don't forget to sanitise on arrival... and whenever you feel appropriate during your visit. 
  • Maximum group/table size 6 people inside and out. No split tables.
  • Table service only, indoors. All drinkers and diners must be seated at a table or a sofa, no upright drinking or propping up the bar allowed these days. In fact no horizontal drinking either come to think of it...!! How terribly boring!
